Breath is life, and its cessation means imminent death. Few know this more intimately than an Assassin. Assassins' magical abilities begin with complex sigils drawn in the air with their hands, but the sigils are consummated and powered by the exhalation of their breath. An experienced Assassin maintains the balance of breath required for its physical exertion and its spells, knowing that a mistake could mean its next breath will be its last.

Assassin is an agility-based job. Assassins combine powerful elemental jutsu and status effects with physical strikes to dispatch their foes quickly.

Each of an Assassin's jutsu generate an elemental Veil, which can be consumed by another jutsu to inflict a status effect, or by Shadow Strike to unleash additional damage potential.

Using the Jutsu in the order listed below will cause them to attempt to inflict status effects. For example: Doton followed by Raiton will lower the target's defenses. Huton followed by Doton will attempt to Slow the target. A full status-inflicting rotation would look something like:

Doton -> Raiton -> Suiton -> Katon -> Hyoton -> Huton -> Doton

Using them in the reverse order and using Shadow Strike after each Jutsu will allow the player to deal additional damage. For example: Suiton followed by Shadow Strike will cause Shadow Strike to deal additional water damage and will amplify the damage of the following Raiton. After using the amplified Raiton another Shadow Strike will deal additional lightning damage and will amplify the damage of Doton. A full damage-oriented rotation would look something like:

Huton -> Shadow Strike (SS) -> Hyoton -> SS -> Katon -> SS -> Suiton -> SS -> Raiton -> SS -> Doton -> SS -> Huton
